For those visiting the region for the first time, some travellers are confused when arriving in the region, especially at night. Hopefully this will help you:
From Montreal it's about an hour and a half drive (125 km)... take highway 15 north...as it ends it will become 117. When you see provincial browns signs, on your way up, announcing Parc Mont Tremblant, ignore them, the ski resort is further.
When arriving at the city of Mt Tremblant (was called St-Jovite before year 2000) stay on highway 117 to reach the resort.
There a three sectors for Tremblant:
1. St-Jovite (for groceries, drug store, shopping, and restaurants) this is 10 kms before reaching the mountain sector. You can reach the mountain from here also but it's a little longer (turn right at the church downtown).
2. The old village sector: quaint and quieter...
3. The mountain sector: ski resort with hotels/condos in the “Disney” like village (restaurants, shops cinema, bars, sleeping accommodations).
Back to the driving directions... to reach the mountain stay on highway 117 until exit 119 (Montée Ryan) take that exit; Esso, McDonald’s and Tim Horton’s on the corner.
There will be a circular intersection (European style) halfway though Montée Ryan (5km or so). Do not take the first turn right as you're heading back to St-Jovite. The one after is the good one (see the tourist info yellow and white house)...the third one takes you to the old village sector...that too takes you to the mountain but making a 5-6 km detour going through the old village.
Upon arriving at the resort, there's another circular intersection, first right takes you to the main parking (for skiers) and also to the Casino (a little further). The second right takes you to Hotel Quintessence, Fairmont, Hilton etc.
